The above photo shows an arrestor type hold down. This type of restraint is used when there is very low thermal movement. Its radius is lined with a belting material designed to absorb shock from movement. It is widely used on compressor lines or similar applications. The restraint type hold down’s clamp radius and base is lined with PT&P’s PTFE slide plate which allows for axial movement while restraining lateral movement and used on compressor lines where temperatures are high and thermal movement is great. This anchor type hold down is utilized on pipelines and require little or no insulation. It is fabricated from carbon steel and can be used in temperatures up to 750oF.
Shown above is one of three neutralization tanks engineered and fabricated by Sweco Fab, Inc. This particular tank is being shipped to the paint contractor for painting and special interior coating.
These tanks are 12 feet in diameter, 39 feet 7 inches high, and have a storage capacity of 25,000 gallons. Special features requested by the client include clips welded on the interior for mounting of headers.
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. announces the latest design of their “Horizontal Upthrust” base type constant support. The table or load flange move straight up or down as the weight of the pipe is transferred to the helical coil (spring) via the internal camlinkage. PTFE, 25% glass filled, slide bearings on the four corners eliminate the possibility of binding if undue axial or lateral forces are exerted. Also, PTFE, 25% glass filled, or graphite slide bearings can be added to the table to ease movement along the axis of the pipe. The Big-Ton and Type F Base Constant Supports are still available for other applications.]
Piping Technology & Products, Inc. has designed and built thirty-two constant effort supports ranging in loads from eighty to eighty-seven kips with seven and one half inches of total travel on each.Six of the thirty-two are shown in position and they will support critical portions of the heater. The balance in other parts of the plant will support equally critical lines such as main steam and boiler reheat.
Located near Calvert, Texas, this is the second generating facility for Texas – New Mexico Power at this site. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. supplied the same material on the previous installation for this client.

Pictured above are spectacle blinds. Piping Technology & Products, Inc. builds these for any pipe size up to 60”. A variety of metals can be used including carbon steels, stainless steels or exotic alloys depending on the pressure rating required and the environment where they must function.
